The Foundation Center was looking for a Content Management System (CMS) to provide a foundation and structure to deploy a new website focused on customers and grant seekers. The CMS needed to serve multiple sites and integrate with existing systems and legacy applications, while providing the organization the basic benefits of content management. They also needed the flexibility to incorporate new web 2.0 functionality and to gain the ability to rapidly develop new websites and microsites.
Beaconfire evaluated seven solutions and narrowed the list down to four to demo for the client. Ultimately, the Foundation Center chose eZ Publish, which has since been used to launch their new GrantSpace website, with a migration of their main website on the horizon.
